325 Ci shock replacement

ok, so here's the deal, my 2001 325 Ci convertible has reached 50 K miles and it's time to change the shocks after they've been abused by Massachusetts roads for the last 5 years. the car doesn't handle the
way it used to. first off, I'm replacing the falken Ziex 512 by Bridgestone Potenza RE750.
Next, I want to put a set of Bilsten shocks and springs. the car does NOT have the sport package and it's also driven by my wife, so it can't be too much stiffer than it already is.
Any recommendations for / against the Bilstein springs?
The next question is: do you recommend anyone on the South Shore / metro west area who would do this work at honest prices?
Cheers,
Lionel

I put eibach prokit springs and sachs shocks on my e36 (with sport suspension) and the ride quality actually improved. Bilstein have a good rep but I've never used them. The choice of shocks will have a big effect on how it rides also.
